      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q, A.
      2 folds, CO calls $0.25, BU raises to $1.00, Hero raises to $3.50, 2 folds, BU calls $2.50.

      Flop: ($7.5) 5, 8, Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $6.00, Hero calls $6.00.

      Turn: ($19.5) 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $14.80(All-In), Hero calls $14.80.

      River: ($49.1) J (2 players)

      Final Pot: $49.1.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of queens(Qd As).
      BU shows three of a kind, fives(5c 5h).

      BU wins with three of a kind, fives(5c 5h).

      Ok this just a sample of the hands im losing a lot of money in. The guy was solid, playing 20/10 and fold to 3-bet 80% which is pretty standard i guess.

      What should my line be in those 3-bet pots, where i either flop a TPTK or an overpair, but am easily behind to a set. Should i just bet/fold in those spots?

      I would say it is nicely played since consider you only c/c flop I won´t put you tptk so I think a lot of players would try to bluff you out smt like TT with his flushdraws or random hands
      So you can´t fold and if you want to take passive line it is fine. You can also c/rai flop to protect your hand against random hands, but c/c down is also fine line
